I’ve noticed the watercolour trend hitting the interiors scene over the past few years and I was wondering if any of you have noticed it too? It started off in accessories like cushions and fabrics, then we saw tableware and ceramics following suit. But it seems to me that this trend is getting stronger and stronger as lots of lovely new collections of watercolour wallpaper are popping up at the moment.
